if possible, what's the best way to authorise appveyor for a github organisation as opposed to a personal user

    Hi Michael,

    I don't think GitHub currently provides that feature. Basically, it's always either Basic or Bearer authentication where Bases is someone's GH username/password and Bearer is personal access token or OAuth token generated on behalf of someone's account.

    BitBucket has a notion of "Team API key" which is essentially a password for Basic authentication.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Hi Feodor,

    Thanks for that. In the end I used a machine account that’s just for this organisation.
